It looks like we will continue to see the effects of Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard. Although not as big as Activison Blizzard’s massive $68 billion sale, Microsoft’s big game rival Sony has acquired Bungie, the developer studio behind big games like Destiny and Halo.
This move, after the huge step taken by Microsoft, was the first move from Sony, which is mentioned with questions. And we can say that it was not effective enough in meeting the expectations. Because everyone was hoping a EA Games move from Sony.
Sony Bought the Famous Game Company Bungie
On their Twitter post, Bungie said: “Bungie has limitless potential to unite friends around the world. We have found a partner in PlayStation that shares our dream and is committed to accelerating our creative vision of building generation-spanning entertainment. Our journey begins today.”.

Sony Interactive Entertainment president and CEO Jim Ryan said in a post on the PlayStation Blog: “We believe games have limitless potential, and that to do anything worthwhile in entertainment, we must bet big on our vision, on our studio, and on our incredible team of trusted creators who build unforgettable worlds that truly matter to people.”.
“In Sony, we have found a partner who unconditionally supports us in all we are and who wants to accelerate our vision to create generation-spanning entertainment, all while preserving the creative independence that beats in Bungie’s heart. Like us, Sony believes that game worlds are only the beginning of what our IPs can become. Together, we share a dream of creating and fostering iconic franchises that unite friends around the world, families across generations, and fans across multiple platforms and entertainment mediums. Today, Bungie begins our journey to become a global multi-media entertainment company.”.
According to the shared posts, Bungie will continue to work independently. With a partner like Playstation, the company’s games will reach more people. It is a matter of curiosity how Destiny 2, which is currently under development, will be affected by this situation.
